Late Friday it was announced that sophomore guard Remy Abell is transferring from the University of Indiana. Normally a player that saw less than double digit minutes transferring isn't all that big of news, however in light of the major roster turnover that's about to happen this is a transfer that is a bit more news worthy. 

Abell transferring out means he will become the fifth player to leave IU as both Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller declared early for the NBA draft along with Jordan Hulls and Christian Watford who will graduate. That means just two players in the rotation from last year will be back. 

Those two are starting point guard Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell and the reigning Big Ten Sixth Man of the Year, Will Sheehy. 

Abell saw diminishing playing time from the non-conference season to the Big Ten portion of the schedule, recording double digit minutes in 10 games during the final 15 of the regular season.  He averaged 4.0 points per game last season and perhaps saw the writing on the wall with some of the younger talent coming aboard. 

It now appears that incoming freshman will have a massive role to play in this team with three starting spots up for grabs and plenty of space in the rotation open period. IU brings in one of, if not the best recruiting class in the Big Ten. It's led by consensus five star forward Noah Vonleh, but the biggest concern for Abell is likely two four-star guards in Troy Williams and Stanford Robinson. 

Also part of that class is four-star forward Luke Fischer out of Wisconsin. 

There is currently no word on where Abell, a native of Louisville, KY will be transferring to as of yet.
